While sometimes you may need to throw a fit about that phone charger, putting up with inconveniences is a normal thing. We all know the old saying ‘measure twice, cut once,’ and it’s wise advice. Before you buy replacement parts for your broken appliances, consider measuring your refrigerator length, width and height first. This will prevent you from buying too large or too small parts that won’t fit properly into your refrigerator.
What to Expect When Shopping for Refrigerator Replacement Parts
When it comes time to replace your Sears Kenmore refrigerator’s default parts, you may be wondering what to expect. When shopping for replacement parts, keep in mind that you likely won’t need many of the components that come with the refrigerator. Rather, focus on items such as the freezer drawer assembly and the compressor/cooling fan motor.
Replacing these components is a great way to improve longevity and performance of your refrigerator. Additionally, Sears offers a satisfaction guarantee on all fridge parts, so you can be sure you’re getting quality replacements.
How to Find Suitable Refrigerator Replacement Parts
Finding the right refrigerator replacement parts for your Sears Kenmore appliance can be a daunting task. Luckily, this guide can help make the selection process a bit smoother. First and foremost, check to see if your appliance is covered under a manufacturer’s warranty. If it is not, then you’ll need to do some searching to find compatible parts.
Next, look at the Part Number label on your appliance. This will give you guidance as to which part number you’ll need to search for replacement parts online or in stores. Once you have the correct part number, use the following guide to help choose compatible replacement parts:
-If your refrigerator has a top freezer compartment, choose parts that are marked ‘U-3753.’
-If your refrigerator has a bottom freezer compartment, choose parts that are marked ‘U-3754.’
-If your refrigerator does not have a bottom freezer compartment and instead has an ice maker, select parts that are marked ‘I-2723.’
-All other models (top or bottom freezers) should select parts that are marked ‘U-3755.’
Once you have the correct replacement part(s), you will need to take them
How to Label an Unknown Appliance (in Spanish)
If you’ve just purchased a new appliance and can’t find the label, or if the label is torn or faded, here’s how to label it for identification purposes. The diagram shown below is for a refrigerator, but the general steps are applicable to most appliances.
1. Look for any markings on the interior of the appliance. In most cases, there will be either manufacturer’s markings or instructions for use printed on tags attached to the inside surfaces (or near) of the machine.
2. If there are no markings on the machine itself, look for any identifying numbers on accessories or pieces that come with it (the water filter delivery unit, in particular). Often these numbers will be found on a plastic tag that has been marked ‘ manufacture date’ and ‘recipient name.’
3. If all else fails, type in the appliance’s model number into a search engine (for example, Google ‘Kenmore Refrigerator LSmodel number’) and see if your machine turns up as a potential match.
